Pixies - "Bagboy" video

Look, the Pixies don’t release original songs too often, so when they do, they’re going to get as much mileage out of it as they possibly can. The hard-pounding and ranty “Bagboy,” the band’s first new song in nine years, already had one anarchic video. And today, they’ve released another video for the same one. This one is a dark and tangled animated clip from Kestrel Media, and it’s full of unnatural animal-singing and dancing cave paintings. Pixies frontman Black Francis says, “We didn’t set out to have two music videos for ’Bagboy,’ but once we saw both of these, we knew we didn’t want to use just one. They’re so good, so creative, and each in its own way, and both made by up-and-coming filmmakers.” Check out the new one below.

  1. i’m not banking on it since it never rose to a full-scale controversy, but this might be the reason they put an alternate video out:
